Oh Fr. Fernando, please heal me!!!

January 18, 2007. Fr. Fernando Suarez, the healing priest, is someone who is so much in love with the poor. His heart is poured out for the lowly. That is why he founded the Mary of the Poor foundation in order to systematize his care and attention to the poor. Despite his heavy schedule, he spared a time for the persons who are also in need of healing and at the same time who are also for the poor. They had a short one-day recollection with Fr. Carl Abesamis, Joey Velasco – the renowned painter of the Last Supper with the kids, Fr. Javey, Fr. Noneth, Queeny and family, Bernie and Fr. Dexter Prudenciano.
